To be a trusted source for the continuum of pro-life services in our community.
To inspire all women to embrace their inherent dignity and to enable pregnant women to choose life for their children.
Life, truth, hope, understanding, compassion, integrity, authenticity
A Better Choice was founded in 1993 by a group of volunteers. We moved into our current location in 1996 next to a (now closed) abortion clinic at Central and Hillside. We continue to operate from this location, providing much needed pregnancy services and support. Over 50,000 pregnancy tests and compassionate conversations have occurred in our office. We began offering limited ultrasounds in 2002 thanks to generous donors and the Knights of Columbus, and have since provided over 3,000 sonograms performed by medical volunteers.
In 2018 we expanded next door into a second building completely devoted to our sonogram program. Although we are an independent non-diocesan ministry, Bishop Carl Kemme blessed our sonogram building at its grand opening. In 2020 we added a social worker to our staff to oversee resource management for our clients. We operate with a small staff and a large volunteer base and are supported entirely by generous donors from the loving pro-life community.
It is impossible to say just how many lives have been saved through our 27-year history, although the number is easily in the thousands – all thanks to God and the faithful individuals who have responded to His call to serve women and the unborn.
